Milestone Advising Program (MAP)

Second Year Milestone Advising

Because interacting with an academic advisor leads to college success and completion, second year students are REQUIRED to meet with their MAJOR advisor during their second year. This meeting will help you to continue to navigate through your major and ensure you are informed about the great opportunities that are available to you!

Step 1: Schedule Your Advising Appointment

To fulfill your MAP Second Year Advising requirement and avoid a registration hold, meet with an academic advisor by the date indicated in your 'Second-Year Advising Requirement' email. Use the Advisor Finder page to find your academic advisor.

Honors: Students in the Honors College are required to meet with their major advisor OR major exploration advisor AND an honors advisor.
